Browser Sandbox now available on Mac!

We are pleased to announce the availability of Mac and cloud execution support in the Turbo.net Browser Sandbox.

The new Browser Sandbox can run containerized browsers in the cloud via an HTML5 interface that runs on any device with an HTML5-enabled web browser.

Try the new Browser Sandbox now at http://turbo.net/browsers.

You can also run browsers on your local desktop when using a compatible Windows device. Turbo.net automatically synchronizes containers between desktops and the cloud so your applications are available anywhere.

Local or Cloud

Turbo.net will automatically select the best execution option (Local or Cloud) based on your device type. To manually select an execution mode, click on the arrow on the Run button to expand run options and select the preferred execution mode.

More Browsers

The Turbo.net Browser Sandbox now provides all versions of major browsers including Internet Explorer, Chrome, Firefox.

Chrome and Firefox images are automatically updated as new updates are released. Every legacy version is available for execution on demand.

Browsers can be configured with any combination of plugins and runtimes, including Java, .NET, Flash, and Silverlight.

A set of popular browsers are available free to use for evaluation purposes.

Turbo.net Pro subscribers can use the new cloud functionality at no additional charge for session lengths up to 10 minutes. (Additional cloud session time available separately.)

Hands On: Turbo Containers Walkthrough on Logitblog.com

Ryan Bijkerk offers his insight on application containers:

The application container technology promises to change the way that IT operations are carried out just as virtualization technology did a few years previously.

On different deployment options:

I like the concept of the centralized cloud hub and it can be very valuable for small start-ups. For the larger organizations Turbo offers an on-premise solution which allows you to host your own hub.

Ryan’s thoughts on getting started with Turbo.net:

The look and feel of Turbo is very nice and after I followed the guide I managed to get it running quite quick.

In this article Ryan walks through creating a container and deploying it. The finished container can be run directly from Ryan’s article.

Having Some Fun with Turbo Containers on bretty.me.uk

Dave Brett explains the inspiration for this article:

Too often I get bogged down in the technical details of a new technology, spend an age learning and figuring out how thing will run best in an enterprise environment when sometimes its just time to have some fun!

Dave discusses resurrecting an XP favorite:

Being the age I am a lot of my professional life was spent on a Windows XP desktop. Whilst this is now out of support there are some great things that this operating system had to let us have some fun! One of those things was 3D Space Cadet Pinball!

Dave discusses deploying a Turbo container using a Citrix AppDisk:

Why not put the Turbo container into a Citrix XenDesktop 7.8 AppDisk and deploy it to all your machine catalogs, this way all your staff can enjoy a little bit of downtime whilst using a secure, easy to deliver, multi platform game in a container.

In this article Dave deploys a secure browser for his NetScaler admins to use in their Citrix environment:

Just publish those apps on your existing XenApp or XenDesktop estate and you have some bullet proof browser deployments for your users to consume.
